Salt of the earth
Take a right hand turn into the discreet driveway opposite Las Salinas beach and discover Boutique Hostal Salinas, a luxury hostel and restaurant smack bang in the centre of a spectacular nature reserve, boasting sand dunes, forests, salt plains, beautiful beaches and incredible sunset views.
Don’t let the name fool you – backpackers hostel this is not! Proudly presided over by owners and long-time island residents Duesi Wolfmeir, Anita Dey and David Phillips, BHS offers 11 simple yet chic rooms with terraces, bathed in light and boasting mod cons.
Each bathroom is kitted out with exclusive BHS beauty products created with salt harvested directly from Salinas as the main beauty-boosting ingredient. Converts take note: snap up super-sized versions at reception.
The hotel’s restaurant, lounge bar and garden are also open to the public, and available for Ibiza weddings and one-off soirees. Drop in before or after hiking, trekking, diving, swimming, sunbathing or sailing to see why Ibiza locals have been hooked on this hotspot since it opened in 2009.
Daily après-beach sessions take place on the terrace, with local DJ heroes spinning beats as the sun goes down – did we mention David is also a resident DJ at Space? Thankfully, sharing his extensive music collection, and inviting his DJ buddies to showcase their record labels, is all in a day’s work…
